That's like saying because some Spanish people don't speak English, all
English is meaningless.

The fact that IE previously failed to implement the <q> tag properly (or at
all) does not mean it has no overt meaningful use. Its meaning is explicitly
defined in the specs, and it is well implemented by other browsers.

Please consider using <div> or <span> instead - if not for your sake, then
for everyone else's.
